    I have been using wordpress stats on mine but I only just started my niche. Any ideas on what tracking I should use? Which has thorough investigation of who visits,where from etc etc. Should I just install good analytics or does anyone have any better ideas?

    Shortstat for wordpress is awesome. I have replaced it over wordpress stats. Gives you # of unique visitors a day, recent list of keywords people used to find your site, pages that get the most hits, and a whole lot of other information.

    Code:

    I also use Statcounter and AddFreeStats. I don't recommend using Google Analytics, just gives them too much info about your site.

    I would go with google to start out. But when you are really needing to get down and really finding out where your customers come from then this is who I use.

    Code:

    I have all my big sites set up with this company. If you buy traffic it even catches that traffic so you can see the IP they are coming from:D
